Sidewall functionalization of carbon nanotubes with organosilanes for polymer composites
AuthorBarrera, Enrique V.; Zhu, Jiang; Zhang, Lei; Khabashesku, Valery N.; Margrave, John L.; Kim, Jong Dae
The present invention is directed to methods of functionalizing carbon nanotubes (CNTs), particularly single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), with organosilane species, wherein such functionalization enables fabrication of advanced polymer composites. The present invention is also directed toward the functionalized CNTs, advanced CNT-polymer composites made with such functionalized CNTs, and methods of making such advanced CNT-polymer composites.
